WHY COLD THERAPY?
Of course, you should follow the instructions of your personal physician, but usually doctors recommend the RICE protocol (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) for the first 24-48 hours to treat an injury or to aid rehabilitation after surgery. After an injury, your body automatically reacts by swelling at the injured site. Application of Cold Therapy at this time helps to slow down the swelling and stimulate the blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin, letting your body begin to heal.
Gentle compression like that provided by the Ice It!® Cold Pack is helpful in limiting and reducing swelling at the site of the injury. This combination of Cold Therapy and Compression will provide the double benefit of two safe, effective, simple techniques to heal the body that much faster.
When it comes to treating chronic pain, even Rheumatoid Arthritis, medical professionals know that alternating cold therapy with heat therapy is also very beneficial in stimulating circulation, reducing swelling, and easing pain.
Limit the length of Cold Therapy to 20 or 30 minutes and wait until your skin is back to a normal temperature before starting another session.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not use Cold Therapy if you are suffering with Reynaud’s Syndrome, paralysis, or areas of impaired sensation (nerve damage).
